the house of representatives, about to become law. let's go to the chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. what's going on at the white house? >> reporter: hi, ali. president obama is going to be out here in the briefing room to make a statement within the next five minutes. he's scheduled to speak. i expect that he will congratulate congress for getting this over the finish line and at least acknowledge -- tell americans that their taxes for the most part will not be going up. and then pitch immediately forward to the next battles that washington will be facing and urge everybody in washington to tackle them in a more expeditious manner. i would like to tell you already senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, the chief republican in the senate who negotiated this final deal with the white house has already sent over a statement engaging the white house on this issue. they sent this one to the press saying -- looking ahead to the next battle. mcconnell says now it is time to get serious about reducing america's out of control spending. it's a debate the people want, the debate we'l

and better from my perspective, he's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, y

. or is it a gun problem? the city has some of the toughest laws on the books. but the chicago police department says 87% of the homicides this year are a result of gun violence. so let's talk. joining me tonight for this conversation, t.o. hardiman. and harold pollock joins us as well. welcome, gentlemen. what is the problem? is it guns, gang, both? what is it? >> i think that everything you mentioned is a problem. but i think that the immediate problem is getting a better handle on illegal guns. many of the murders that take place involve 18-year-old kids dealing with each other, having normal 18-year-old conflicts. and then you introduce a gun to that. and someone ends up dead. i think that helping kids deal with those conflicts more productively but also doing everything we can to deal with those illegal guns is critical to bringing the homicide rate down. >> this is exactly what cease-fire deals with, especially the gang issue. and you know from experience, you know this well. before i talk to you, do you remember back in 2009 in the summer, this was right after 2008 when it was high. you a

on an hourly basis. >>> all marriage problems come down to one of five areas -- money, sex, in-law, communication and children. when kay and i got married, we went 5 for 5 in the first month. and our marriage was down dooby doo down down. >> let's try to work out the permutations which enabled money, sex, in-laws, communication and children all to go down in the same month. that seems pretty dramatic. >> a gallup poll shows the number one cause of divorce is money. of course, during this last four or five years in economic recession as a pastor, i've had to deal with a lot of marriages under enormous stress when either one or both are out of the work. it puts additional stress on everybody. >> it really does, doesn't it? more than anything. people lose their sense of purpose. if they haven't got a job, for example. their sense of identity. their sense of self-worth. their pride. there's nothing worse than being unemployed in terms of your pride. >> one of the things i try to teach people is that your value has nothing to do with your valuables. that your self-worth has nothing to d

into law have failed anyway if you hadn't? >> there is no question but that a number of places where we went in and invest it, we were investing in an enterprise that was in trouble. with the future was very much in doubt for it and we invested in one business that lost 50 or $60 million more the year before we invested and a lot of people didn't want to touch it. we were able to go in there with the current management team, helped get the business back on track. the managers' training but they were able to turn it around as a success and it is still around today doing quite well. provides jobs for a lot of people. the idea that somehow making a business profitable is different than helping people is really a foreign idea because the whole american free enterprise system is associated with creating success, making business is profitable. they can hire more people and growth. every investment that i made while i was responsible for an investment firm, every investment was designed to help the business grow and to become more successful. >> up next, one of my most frustrating interviews.

ceremony, sign it into law and get ready for the next crisis which is not going to be that far down the road. >> that's right. i mean, this is a victory for the white house because it will address the tax concern. the president campaigned on this promise to raise taxes on upper income americans. it is not the same level he campaigned on. he said $250,000 and up, this is $450,000, but still the broad principle is kept. now they're going to turn and pivot and fight over how to bring down the nation's deficit. the president will have to battle with the republicans. he'll make the case that it should be between revenues and spending cuts, and we all know republicans argue it should not include revenues. and the debt ceilinging ins no going to be hit at the same time that this spending delay is hit in february. so we're going to have another titanic battle just two months from now. the big question is will the president take a little break and go to hawaii in between. we'll see, wolf. >> his family is still out there. i'm sure he'd love to head back to the state where he is born. let's
